Shooter's behavior product of a liberal, godless society

By BOB J. HENSON  Hardin

EDITOR:

Just a few weeks ago, Elliot Rodger, 22 years old, killed six people and injured 13 others in Santa Barbara, Calif. As might be expected, the cry went up almost immediately for stricter gun control/ownership laws. Few states have stricter gun laws than California, but those laws did nothing to prevent a troubled young man's deadly actions.

It is human nature for people to want to place blame for such an act. It is also the usual pattern for blame to be placed upon guns and/or gun owners. But, might blame be placed elsewhere?

Look at the young man's age. As a child, he was no doubt taught in school that man is no more than a higher form of animal (evolution) and that life has little if any value (abortion). Why then would we be surprised if he takes another's life?

And since he could not be taught the ways of God from the Bible in school (thanks to the ACLU), why not blame public education (NEA, etc.) and the ACLU?

The parent companies of the major news networks (NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC, et al.) and Hollywood bombarded him daily with a steady barrage of violence, and movies depicting evil and immoral acts, all promoted and endorsed by the disciples of an overtly hedonistic society. Might the blood of those victims in Santa Barbara possibly be on the hands of the media/entertainment industry? Does the video game industry share any culpability?

This young man's behavior is the product of a society that liberalism and godless humanism built. As long as the discipline and leadership of the Creator is not used to guide our youth and our homes, events such as this one in Santa Barbara may be expected. Sad commentary! Proverbs 14:34.
